“Getting Into NYC Kindergarten” and “Getting Into NYC High-School” books offer a general overview about applying to public, private, charter, religious and gifted schools.

But parents frequently require guidance for their particular situation, and answers to questions like:

What school would be best for my child? What are our odds for getting in? What can I do to improve our chances? Which schools would best nurture my child’s strengths - and accommodate their weaknesses? Do I qualify for private school financial aid? (You’ll be shocked by how many people are - but don’t know it!) How should I choose between my various school options?

For these kinds of questions, we offer personalized, one-on-one consultations to talk through all of your options and come up with a year-long (or more - I’ve worked with families whose children are as young as 6 months old!), application game-plan for the process. Remember, applying to Kindergarten may take as long as 2 years, especially if you are open to the possibility of moving.

Rates: $90 per half hour over the phone. If you would like to speak for more than an hour, we can meet face to face for no extra cost. (Read happy customer testimonials, here.)
